The Canon Telephoto EF 85mm f1.8 is an inexpensive, lightweight lens ideal for medium range shooting. The lens performs with impeccable control in low light conditions. When matched with its overall quiet and capable construction, the 85mm pairs down the excess for a no-nonsense portrait lens that can adapt to a number of other applications. It is built with an eight blade aperture and a range that produces a soft bokeh (background blur quality) effect, which is ideal for portraiture and pairs well with its shallow depth of field focus control.
The ring-type Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor (USM) decreases the sound of the lens because it does not rotate while focusing. Additionally, the autofocus is exact and nearly instantaneous. This makes it ideal for nature and event photographers, as well as those looking for faster all-around autofocus. Optionally, overriding auto to manual focusing in difficult lighting is also easy and accessible with a mode switch built close to the camera body.
